Thanks for your question. I am a solicitor in Scotland. If you have an order from the Tribunal and sheriff officers were already instructed to enforce the order you should not need to go to the sheriff court. Can you tell me what amount the Tribunal awarded? Is the employer a limited liability company? Why did the sheriff officers not make a recovery? What does their report say? Was a Charge for Payment served by them?
Have you looked at Companies House Beta and studied the company’s accounts?
You could threaten to lodge a liquidation petition.
You would need to ask an insolvency practitioner to consent to be interim liquidator. Your solicitor would apply to the court for a winding up order. However, it would be appropriate to issue a 7 day letter threatening a winding up petition first of all. You would need to underwrite the costs which would form a first charge on any recovery in a liquidation.
